C is my favourite.
for flash routers flash disk looks like
/netbsd.gz (contains kernel and cut-down system)
/config.tar.gz (contains configuration)
at startup (added after root fs mount) such commands are done
tar xzpf /flash/config.tar.gz
/flash is mounted read only, i just remount it in
/etc/save-config script that is run manually when needed.
8MB flash is enough
